If you don’t immediately think of Raleigh, North Carolina as a city offering much in the way of culture, the odds are you’ve probably never been or, at very least, never visited the North Carolina Museum of Art. And if you have, it could very well be that, ever since, you’ve been jockeying to find a place to live near enough to be able to enjoy the free dawn to dusk access Raleigh residents enjoy year round.
The museum’s permanent collection of artifacts spans 5,000 years of human history. Its park is teeming with trails and streams, and has also served for numerous outdoor concerts bringing in a broad range of popular and eclectic acts.
If you’ve never considered the potential positive impact that constant exposure to a museum of this caliber can have to the intellectual development of your children, perhaps it’s time to start tossing around the idea of finding out. It’s easy enough to find apartments in Raleigh that will put you in the advantageous position of being able to spend hours every week exploring the museum and soaking in all it has to offer. Consider this: if some people can uproot their lives to be closer to the beach, surely uprooting to be closer to a world-class museum makes far more sense.
